Greetings members of CONvergence,
We are excited to share with you that CONvergence 2019 will be held July 4-7, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency hotel in downtown Minneapolis. Although CONvergence has been at the same venue for almost twenty years, it has been obvious to everyone we have outgrown the available space.
What may be expected with this new location?
- All the events and activities you currently love at CONvergence, virtually all of them with more room.
- New configurations for new party rooms, better than ever!
- A HUGE Dealers Room, which will contain many more dealers and still have wide aisles and room to move.
- A beautiful MainStage space with plenty of seats.
- Space for new events that will be added over the next few years. (Can you say Holodeck?)
- Significantly more sleeping rooms in the main hotel, as well as more overflow hotel rooms than we currently use in immediate proximity, most connected to the Hyatt via skyways.
- Many wonderful food options in the immediate vicinity as well as food truck options. This will be in addition to all of the usual offerings from ConSuite and the Volunteers Den.
- Real, accessible public transit options.
CONvergence is already working to make sure that this transition to a new space is as seamless as possible for all of our members. We will be be providing you with more detailed information in the coming months.
Over the last twenty years, everyone who has been a part of CONvergence has contributed to building an extraordinary community and making many wonderful memories. We are so excited to have a new space that will better fit our needs as we continue adapting to the changing needs of our convention and its members. We look forward, along with all of you, to bringing the CONvergence experience to our new location, making more memories, and seeing what amazing new things are in store!
